Brandon Sanderson visiting artist (part two)…

I am so excited to post these pictures from our visit with Brandon Sanderson. Brandon is an Associate Professor at UNC Pembroke, and was the FIRST artist coming to WVU under the new “WVU Master Printmaking Series in honor of Joe Hestick” funded by Beth Hestick. While at WVU, Brandon worked and worked our students! The shop was buzzing with activity for three days, it was great!

During his visit, Brandon created a 66 print edition of a 10-11 color litho/silkscreen with students, printed some intaglio prints, proofed some laser cut imagery, gave a public lecture and gave critiques to students.
